    Wish i live in America! Shipping ivory abroad would break some rules probably!
    So i guess i'm stuck here grinding down domino's!
    U should buy those, good investment at 4 bucks!

    I think capybara teeth are ivory too, similar to beaver, elk teeth, warthog tusks. You might want to ask around for other sources of indigenous ivory.

    There is vegetable ivory as well, in the form of Tegu Nuts. Lots of scrimshaw artists are using them these days.

    No capybara , elk or warthog live here in the Netherlands!
    And beavers are a protected species, or have no teeth.....
    And those tropical nuts are hard to come by.
    Plastic or deer antler is only way.
    But antlers are very expencive.
    Ill be keeping an eye out for old piano's though!
